Rising concentrations of atmospheric CO2 are changing the carbonate chemistry of the oceans, a process known as ocean acidification (OA). Absorption of this CO2 by the surface oceans is increasing the amount of total dissolved inorganic carbon (DIC) and bicarbonate ion (HCO3 −) available for marine calcification yet is simultaneously lowering the seawater(More)
Ocean acidification (OA) threatens the existence of coral reefs by slowing the rate of calcium carbonate (CaCO3) production of framework-building corals thus reducing the amount of CaCO3 the reef can produce to counteract natural dissolution. Some evidence exists to suggest that elevated levels of dissolved inorganic nutrients can reduce the impact of OA on(More)
Planulation by Favia fragum at the high-latitude reef of Bermuda was examined during July and August of 2004–2007. In 2004 and 2005, observations were extended to June and September; however, planulation only occurred in July and August, when temperatures were increasing toward and during the annual high. Planulation peaked 6–12 days after the new moon,(More)
Semper's larvae were obtained from <300 out of ∼1800 plankton tows taken in the world's oceans (1964–1993). Zoanthellae (larvae of Sphenopidae) occurred at 217 stations and zoanthinae (larvae of Zoanthidae) at 86, the two larval types showing distributions clearly delimited by a minimum sea temperature (∼22 °C for zoanthellae, ∼18 °C for zoanthinae; a(More)
Recent research has documented phenotypic differences among larvae released from corals with a brooding reproductive mode, both among species and within broods from a single species. We studied larvae released from the common Atlantic coral Porites astreoides in Bermuda to further evaluate phenotypic variability. Inter-site differences were investigated in(More)
